Sale Alert: 42 Summer Shoes from the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale

It’s that time again. The (StyleCarrot partner) Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale during which thousands of items, including over 3,500 pairs of shoes, are discounted up to 40 percent through Sunday, June 4, 2017. That means you have 10 shopping days left, but don’t wait til the last minute because sizes sell out fast.

To make it easier for you, and well, because I like to shop for shoes, I sifted through most of the 3,500 plus sale shoes and distilled the many amazing choices down to just 42 goodies. I tried to include a mix of colors and styles, focusing on  neutrals, though I did through in a few brights. Most are casual daytime looks, but a few heels can play dress up.

While most of my Nordstrom sale shoe picks are summer styles—open toe sandals and plenty of espadrilles, plus a slip on sneaker or two—I also included a smattering of boots, including #7 and #22 Hunter rain boots (because it’s raining today and I desperately need some) and two winter staples—#13 Rachel Comey Mars bootie and #31 Rag & Bone Ashby bootie. Take your pick, but buy one. You will thank me come fall.

I need to make a few other shout-outs. I’m seriously considering the Joie studded bootie for a some fall/winter whimsy. I already own the Dolce Vita Loki Slide, which I actually didn’t include below, but is on sale. It runs seriously wide (go a half size down), but it works fine enough and is super comfortable.

Last year on a press trip to the Vineyard I bought #8 Toms Majorca Perforated Mule which has a chunky, not too high heel. I thought the under $100 price was a bargain, but now at under $55 it’s a no brainer.

I ordered #14 Opening Ceremony Elena Sandal yesterday as a stylish every day sandal when I’m not wearing my incredibly comfortable (but kinda middle aged lady) Skechers slip on sneakers. I also ordered #30 Vince Thalia Sandal thinking it will elevate pretty much any outfit I throw on. I got a pair of distressed marine blue Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Shoreline Low Tops too.

I was a bit indulgent yesterday. But when you see these and start browsing I think you may just have a hard time restraining yourself too. Let me know what you picked!

Get the Look: Party Dresses From All the Best Designers

Selecting the holiday party dresses here was more fun than going shopping for the real thing. The list of designers reads like a Vogue editor’s Fashion Week to-do list. There are 42 different designers represented here, each dress more fun than the next. Probably you won’t be able to actually buy many of these, thanks to the sky high prices, but still, they are divine.

If I were going to a holiday party, and I could wear any of them (and this is in dreamland, where I have the perfect body to match my bottomless wallet), I think I’d opt for the Rachel Roy or Marc Jacobs, though I do also love the drape-y metallic Vivienne Westwood and the darling Nina Ricci. I also love the idea of the Isabel Marant with black booties, topped with a leather moto jacket. I suppose it depends on the occasion. They’re all pretty fabulous. Which holiday party dress would you wear to a fancy fete?
